We stayed in a beautiful old (about 200 years) hotel located on a walking street lined with ancient buildings.
That street led into the town plaza surrounded by buildings and churches dating back several hundred years. We were fascinated by the "eyes of the city" which are the little windows in the roofs of the buildings.
A church that was built in the 1500's.
One evening we drove several hours to a bed & breakfast located on a isolated hilltop
This is the view from the front yard of the "Casa Roger" B&B where we had a wonderful traditional Romanian meal. Roger is a member of the Church from England who built this bed and breakfast near a little village where he has been doing humanitarian aid work for almost 20 years.
These village girls, dressed in authentic Romanian costumes served our meal.
Along the way, we passed through beautiful countryside.
Throughout the drive, we saw flocks of sheep like this one. Unfortunately, we are not the best picture takers, but the little tiny dark dot in the middle of the sheep is the shepherd. Unlike American sheepherders who drive their flocks from behind, each flock had a shepherd carrying a staff and leading the flock. They look like they stepped out of the scriptures.
What a wonderful way to start our mission in Romania!
